  • Step 4: Make A Clothes Call

    Ah, the closet. Whether a walk-in or reach-in, a well–thought out space for your clothes can be a thing of beauty. Chief Design Officer of California Closets Ginny Scott outlines this game plan for closet glory.

    • Get rid of unused, ill-fitting items. "Enlist a 'tough love' friend to weigh in on what to keep and what to throw out," she says.

    • Brighten up the space so you can see your clothes. A glam light fixture is great if you have a huge walk-in. Otherwise, Scott suggests battery-powered stick-on LEDs under shelving.

    • Transparency is critical. According to Scott, "You don't wear what you don't see. Limit stacks of clothes to 10 inches tall and partitioning piles on the shelves with thin bookends."

    • Place rods at various heights in order to maximize hanging space. A high bar at about eye level should do the trick for long garments. A lower bar at 42 inches works for shorter things.
